real work...you know who you are). Every year at Thanksgiving, our school caregiver sets up the big tree in the atrium for me, then I begin making it look better! This year I had my little fella with me. We decided to dress in matching tree-decorating clothes. (Since I don't own a Racecar or Choo Choo Train shirt, we wore black and overalls.)
I pulled apart all the limbs and branches, strung it with colored (not white...after all, it is a tree for the kids) lights, then began hanging the sweet ornaments made by each of the elementary students. For some of them, this is their first time to see a tree or make an ornament, as not every country celebrates Christmas. I love getting to do this!
